How to start better and safer oral hygiene to your little ones?

Oral Health is the key indicator of well-being, overall health, and quality of life. Good oral and dental hygiene helps prevent bad breath, tooth decay, and gum diseases—and can help you keep your teeth strong and healthy as you grow older. An unhealthy mouth may increase the risk of serious health problems such as heart attack, stroke, poorly controlled diabetes, and preterm labor.

The practice of good oral hygiene should start on the first day a baby is born. Developing good oral hygiene is essential in preventing early childhood caries and it is also the first line of defense against common dental problems such as plaque, tooth decay, gum disease, and halitosis.



How do you start a good dental care practice?

As the saying goes " You can't build a great building on a weak foundation." Therefore, early practice of dental care is important for your child's health to keep teeth healthy for a lifetime. Healthy baby teeth help children eat and speak clearly and they guide permanent adult teeth into the proper position.

Gently clean your baby's mouth using a soft baby toothbrush. When teeth start to come in, use a toothbrush with a smear (size of a grain of rice) of fluoride toothpaste. Brush your child's teeth in the morning and especially at bedtime

Colgate's new products for babies are perfect to safely practice the baby's oral health.
Colgate Baby Toothpaste for 0 - 2 years old is fluoride-free and has no artificial flavors, preservatives, sweeteners, and colors. Because it is fluoride-free, it is safe if swallowed. It also has a natural fruit flavor that will not irritate the baby's sense of taste.


Colgate Baby Toothbrush, on the other hand, is BPA-Free, made of 100% Food Grade Silicone, and can act as a teether for baby. It is small-headed and it can fit the baby's mouth and can better reach all areas of the mouth.

For kid's dental hygiene, there's Colgate Anticavity Toothpaste which contains age-appropriate fluoride and has 0% artificial flavors, preservatives, sweeteners, and colors. It has an appealing taste of natural strawberry flavor, which the kids will truly love.

Fluoride while it is proven to strengthen outer tooth enamel, might do harm to the health of our young once if swallowed more often. Also if they are allergic to fluoride — or have another medical condition — using fluoride-free toothpaste is better.

With Colgate's new products for babies and kids, oral care is more fun and safer for them.
